A couple of things -

  1. 'u' in the pack template is UUEncoded text, I think you want 'U' for unicode, right? The template you are looking for should be "LU32PLU32PL"
  2. Instead of " " x 32, pass a list of 32 32's, for example:
    push @splist, 32 for (1 .. 32); $tz_struct = pack("LU32PLU32PL", 0, @splist, $systime_struct, 0, @splist, $systime_struct, 0 +);
  3. 'P' and 'N' are constants defined in Win32::API, not strings. The third parameter to new Win32::API should be an anonymous list or an array reference, not a string literal
    'GetTimeZoneInformation', [P], N
  4. Have fun unpacking the unicode string! If all you are interested in is the bias, try "LS64PLS64PL" for the template.


Updated my Win32::API, and updated #3 above. Thanks mothra:-)
BTW, $bias returns 480 after making the above modifications (UTC -8)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
